The Kansas City metro area's Jewell
Ball dates back to 1954 although there were previously other such coming-of-age or debutantes parties. It
is held at the Nelson Atkin's Art Museum and on a yearly basis.
Tickets to the gala soire benefit
both the museum and the Kansas City Symphony. Many of the young ladies take on highly active roles in bettering
How so? For example some have helped to begin, grow and promote
various cultural endeavors in the arts, advancements in medicine and science, as well as do service projects feeding
and otherwise helping the poor and needy.
So by all means please doff your hats and give a bow with much applause
for the ladies of the Jewel Ball, gentlemen.........
